New Poetry by Jonathan Beale

When the clock catches up

For J.S. i.m. perhaps

Time rips through the flesh
Remorselessly – blind in blood 
Bricks - mortar - stone
Remain….  Still remain
Girls in their youths colour
Breath life 
The boys in their idealism
Divine the path
Endings are an impossibility
Yet find a way    
Another way
An undiscovered way
‘Be calm. God awaits you at the door.’ *

- Jonathan Beale 2016

* Gabriel Garcia Marquez, "Love in the Time of Cholera"
